a little bit strange because he's in the region so they talk too much about islam and about us it is not about the religions are said to be fed up with their brand of what's been dubbed radical liberalism it's the country's multicultural policies to turn the government against his own playing the way the far right sentiment. why isn't. ready to admit and there's a polite and respectful attitude towards that kind of. mainstream media but the reality is that fifty percent off in the us are against multiculturalism as people here try to pick up the pieces and bring meaning to these twin attacks they're already saying it will fail relations between communities some expect the crackdown by police on the e.u. growing full right movements while others fear this will only fuel resentment
8:07 am
against europe's muslims victims are beginning to piece back together a bit shocked at lloyd's but they express well this might not be the last such attack as outrage at the perceived failure of a multicultural society grows the new bush will see oslo. meantime who love us and who knows the suspect personally told r.t. that he was shocked by the news but also was a place where radicalism is on the rise. i could not imagine i. imagine. it must have been brainwashed or something he never came across. a religious fanatic or anything i mean i knew that he was religious but it wasn't like prying to urge you or anyone praying you know. i just knew he was really just pretty much. i would more describe him.
8:08 am
simply irritated them all the way. he would be angry that he would be the second person but they are and a lot. more than that i have not. thought through idealised. why. all the other towns have to lose their own. life. people who all have very radical religious all ranging from white christian and then you have. the less than obvious managed to find right wing groups so i'm not generally surprised that people find their extreme ideas so. basically like your poison which wrong way do you want to. i know that was a former acquaintance of. yours but whole world is an artist's guessing what lies
8:09 am
behind the atrocity and you can join in the debate on our website dot com but let's look at the stats now and see where you stand so far the majority think that sheer fanaticism is to blame fewer people say the tensions stem from multiculturalism nine percent believe the reason is global terrorism which penetrates everywhere the minority say it's down to the failure of security forces you know toss your head in the ring here have your say i log on to martin dot com. you're watching the weekly here on c.n.n. this week the phone hacking and police bribery scandal was taken to the british parliament rupert murdoch his son james and former u.k. c.e.o. rebecca brooks all grilled by british and americans for several hours the trio said they were deeply sorry for what happened however new allegations of a version of the news international chairman james murdoch misled m.p.'s by saying he was unaware of the true extent of illicit phone tapping by the company. the

modocs could now face legal challenges in the u.s. over claims the voice mails of nine eleven victims were also targeted meanwhile britain's hacking scandal appears to be spreading beyond the murdoch empire which claims now the sunday mirror its have not also bugged so celebrities voicemail messages but it also has gone h.d. catapults critics believe the issue is just the tip of the ice we're going to society that no longer values individual privacy. as the scandal over phone hacking by the murdoch media empire rages on public and political theory has mainly focused on ruthless tabloids out of control prepared to invade people's private lives and even the dad to get the story but some say in this day and age the whole concept of privacy is falling apart and in the u.s. more rapidly than elsewhere every time you tap on your cell or click on. who or use your mail service everybody's sort of just clicks through that you agree to our
8:11 am
terms and conditions well those terms and conditions are very very heavily weighted against you and your privacy interest we see you breaches of privacy have been by corporations all across america all across the world really in every sector surveillance is rampant but really here this is all a microcosm of the biggest surveyor of all which is to say there's little americans can do with the state having sweeping access to their private information access that followed the nine eleven terrorist attacks under a new law known as the patriot act asana law his privacy was taken away from him in two thousand and two when he was detained by the f.b.i. for absolutely no reason he says and scrutinized for months without charge is response for nine years he has voluntarily documented nearly every waking hour of his life on the web he has subsequently even turned it into a form of art sealed the toilet i've used so you know that over here for example
8:12 am
you know that on sunday november twenty fourth two thousand and seven i used as far as i went grocery shopping at safeway over there and afterwards i think i got gas over here he posts copies of every debit card transaction so you can see what he bought where and when a g.p.s. device in his pocket records his real time physical location on a map and this is the shot he took on his way to our studio which was immediately up loaded on his website hassan says his extraordinary abandonment of his own privacy stamps from the ignorance of the authorities but in the here he decided well that guy looks a little different so he must be arab and if he's arab then he must have explosives everyone knows that and that's the logic we're operating we we realize how ridiculous that logic sounds but when your country when your own country takes that on as the basis for national policy. ignorance is the basis of national policy is a pretty scary situation and. for haasan privacy has become
8:13 am
a rally of the past and he says he's not surprised that journalists or anyone else really would use the same surveillance tactics as the street in that sense it might be of no surprise that the chief architect of the putrid act who we are who put it together happens to be one of her docs can't take used for poor guy rector's didn't serve this is assistant attorney general in the bush administration and was described by some as the purveyor of the most sweeping curtailment of freedom in the us system mccarthy era at a time when corporations and the government can easily hacking through people's private lives it doesn't come as a surprise when for example social networks give your personal information to ad companies or when other industries leave on breaching people filing in the u.s. it's so widespread and people have gotten so used the way that rupert murdoch seems to be perfect part of the system rather than some special bill and with corporation
8:14 am
has been undertaking some unique all lawful practices because here in america there are not so you me i'm going to shut down reporting from washington r.t. . the editor of the independent news website says a public trust has been seriously undermined by the fire and how can scandal. to find out that certain officers had been on the payroll of these organizations and providing details to you to the journalists who were involved in a scandal that in itself is is quite a disgrace and it does raise the question of who is properly qualified to look into this into to form a proper investigation certainly not the police itself investigating itself that would be ridiculous at this point and the idea again of a parliamentary inquiry it has to be at least seem to be completely free of ties to the prime minister's office certainly and to any other m.p.'s it may have been implicated in this scandal so it's it's going to be an incredible mess unfortunately for the british people to be sorting through right now and i think
8:15 am
trusting the public institutions has been necessarily eroded by this appalling disgraceful conduct on the part of so many different people in whom the public has invested so much trust. you're watching the weekly here on r t it's good to have your company on this sunday and i still have you on the program begins handing control of afghan provinces to local army forces but questions are raised if they're up to the job. plus we'll hear from campaigners against u.s. drone attacks in pakistan lots of virus a lawsuit a former cia legal chief poor approving attacks that killed hundreds of innocent. emergency workers and recovered more bodies from the russian pleasure boat that sank in the volga river two weeks ago killing more than one hundred twenty the wrecked ship has now been lifted from the bottom and towed to shallow waters the task is now to pump water from the hole so investigators can examine the vessel to
8:16 am
determine the cause of the tragedy the search continues for the bodies of the last two missing victims which could still be trapped inside the bulgarian went down within minutes drowning more than half of its two hundred passengers the boat's owner is under investigation and a two people have already been charged with violating safety regulations. well greece has a lot of a sigh of relief as after long talks e.u. leaders have finally agreed on how to help the country avoid defaulting on its debt athens will now receive a new bailout worth an estimated one hundred and nine billion euros the plan also calls lowering interest rates and extending the period in which it must repay it back and also grants bankrupt portugal and ireland twice as much time to pay back their own loans meanwhile spain which has the highest rate of unemployment in the euro zone saw thousands of protesters converge on the capital this saturday with more rallies expected later on sunday financial journalist patrick young says bailing out failing economies will not help them in the long term. i think it's
8:17 am
going to prolong the agony unfortunately like everything we've been looking for for weeks we want to leadership from the european union and i think really the european union so. sort of press conference just demonstrates what a shambles this whole proceedings is i mean we have to sit through chain different leaders all telling us who's actually in charge and what's going on they give certain parts of the information seems to be contradictory if ultimately alone more money has been thrown at the greek economy in the hope that our property teachin really a lot of it just looks like hype and i'm very very concerned that we have in fact we find a cure we've just got another sticking plaster that can has been kicked down the road the danger of contagion still leaking to other countries such as our old portugal even italy and spain are there and therefore if we don't have a cure ultimately we can't keep spending all the banks money and all of the government's money on all of these economic issues and at the sea in time consumers
8:18 am
are basically scared and i think they're going to dry up and not be willing to indulge in normal economic activity i think it's a worrying time and fears of a default are also raging across the atlantic where barack obama met with congressional leaders in a desperate bid to avoid economic collapse previous talks with a republican house speaker broke down on friday congress must approve raising its current fourteen point three trillion dollars debt level before the second or risk of default the impact would which would shake the entire world economy the deal now offered by president obama includes it slashes the medical costs and other entitlements but wortham across and republicans are divided over the details of a package of spending cuts and tax rises doesn't matter because journalists are great a poll last says it's the ordinary americans who will have to foot the government's bills. george bush when he was president. want two thousand and eight one why oh. yeah searchlights given germany six billion dollars
8:19 am

8:23 am
a perception that the u.s. and nato were defeated by an armed insurgency but this dilemma must be solved some way so ultimately the united states cannot prevail the assassination of karzai as brother and his inner circle shows that the edifice of the karzai regime necessary at least to get an afghan face to the nato occupation that itself is now crumbling these armed attacks these assassination attempts are designed to create panic and i think in all likelihood they are creating panic within a very hard to foundation of the karzai government the u.s. is losing grown steadily it's spending one hundred twenty billion dollars a year that's an increasing amount from the treasury that's already drained based on huge budget deficits here the number of casualties on the afghan and american side is is increasing not decreasing and yet they're no closer to victory in fact they're losing control of the country and the government that they sponsor is is in fact in danger of crumbling i would say the u.s.
8:24 am
hasn't gained anything i think the u.s. is losing ground it's spite of what david petraeus and the obama administration say this is a bad situation possibly a catastrophe for the united states. and later began by you handover of control in parts of afghanistan to local security forces some analysts feel the country is ill equipped to fend off insurgency without foreign aid there's concerns here that afghans are divided with some fearing a return to taliban rule jason much like has the story. there's confusion on the faces of the afghan army soldiers as a firefight unfolds on the other side of the wall looking for them this is the called the military training center in the courts parking lot i mean here if we threw a ten week program the officers don't cut them it is slack when it's over the be deployed eastern queen or province afghanistan's most violent corners and i've decided to let the zero muster start hard so they've got a lot of pressure that day by day we're making it on us the afghan national army
8:25 am
has already come a long way it's weeks of swelling to about one hundred seventy thousand troops and stuff moves of recruits in trucks of the higher wages and exploit hurts the soldiers insist we're all united in their desire to beat back the tide of history and see the city worth missing men in the army our older brother and we're all calling my son. was right the call of duty has also struck a chord beyond able bodied males a first of a class of women soldiers has just graduated. and even the mujahideen unit meet up with me and say soon this is all good news to us military planners absolute two thousand and fourteen had to hand over security responsibilities to the afghans and the afghan army enjoys a much better reputation of the police force has even been featured in the recent movie. but is the army takes greater responsibility for security around the country there are concerns that the quantity of troops may be coming at the expense of quality started as more than eighty percent of troops are literally
8:26 am
a big problem on our ability to really match in numbers can spell the difference between life and adding to that was a widespread drug use and desertion let's say roughly one in four combat soldiers quit their post critics also point out that the military leadership is made up of many rival x. warlords who still come in world these long regionally the lines i would like to contribute to confront as the u.s. begins to scale back its role as custodian this summer there are concerns that these divisions may flare up if i start neutral. we need to be united ninety three would be fighting you should be killing each other these. little groups if you can prove it yet another obstacle for a young army but still has much to learn from before it can still need some juice and will plug in called for some of. you all watching the weekly scene over us has been carrying out drone strikes in pakistan for years but now one of the masterminds of the attacks is in the crosshairs himself former cia official joining
